Rich Brooks is back in town and Kentucky can’t lose with Brooks in town

If there’s one thing going in UK’s favor heading into tomorrow night’s game, it’s that Rich Brooks is in town.

Brooks landed at Blue Grass Airport last night and is spending his Friday making his rounds around Lexington, before tonight’s Hall of Fame dinner and ceremony. As you can see the photo, he stopped by the football offices to check in with Coach Stoops earlier today. Maybe he gave him a pointer or four on how to get the team back on track.

Brooks is one of the members of the new 2016 UK Hall of Fame class; along with one of his players, Wesley Woodyard, who is also in town. Woodyard’s Tennessee Titans are at home Sunday so he was able to make the short trip for tonight’s induction and tomorrow’s game. (Can I get a ride back to Nashville, Wesley?)

I don’t know about you, but I have a whole new outlook on the game with Brooks in town. No way the team takes an L with Papaw on the sidelines. I had eyes on South Carolina at +3, but Brooks changes things.

It’s good to see him back.

    How many games did Brooks win in his first 4 years at Ky and how many has Stoops? Just wondering.

    Stoops lives in a fantasy world, proof? Give it up bro, shave your F-ing head and move on.

    Brooks was 0-7 against South Carolina. I don’t think he should be giving out advice.
